[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The mother was feeding him flowers. I think Danylion was one of them.

During the breeding season, the female develops a bare patch on her abdomen that fills with fluid. This allows more efficient transfer of heat to the eggs.
The head pattern of the Chipping Sparrow changes in fall and winter.
Their nest is so flimsy that light can be seen through it.
A group of Chipping Sparrows are collectively known as a "tournament" of sparrows.

Hello Trevor,
What a fine picture of this juvenile Sparrow. Somehow so touching to see this little creature hidden in between the branches of a pine. Very natural and pleasing shot.
Kind regards
